Ok ladies. I have a crafty husband. He took deer antler tips and made
a tiny hole in the flat part. Inserted a sewing needle and hot glued it in.
I use it for Ornate projects and it works really well for holding down the
Poly material. Keeps your fingers out of the way of the heat. Yes, Poly rolls and curls up but keep heating with your embossing heat gun. HOT
Yes very. You say you dont have deer antlers? Its ok...... use wood,
an eraser, anything long enough to keep your fingers off the needle and out of the hot air. Shish kabob skewers works very well too!
